We began cutting wheat yesterday here in North Central Kansas. I will be sharing some photos soon, once I have them uploaded to my computer. I am in charge primarily of feeding the crew. I never know for sure when the first meal will need to be delivered to the field, but my duties officially began last night at suppertime. I try to keep it simple and fairly light as temperatures have been very warm. I thought I’d share a few of my recipes, so you can enjoy them with your family as well!!! Wishing a bountiful and safe harvest to all of the farmers!
